grandPad tablet for seniors

Comfort Keepers, a Sodexo brand, has teamed-up with grandPad to offer its senior-focused tablets to further enhance its in-home care service.

Starting in late April of 2016, Comfort Keepers’ customers will benefit from grandPad senior tablets and use them to make the world more accessible to seniors by providing simple and safe ways to stay connected with family, friends and caregivers. Said tablet offers access to games, photo sharing, video chat and more.

“The independence and empowerment afforded to seniors through the use of a grandPad could not be more congruent with the Comfort Keepers brand promise — to enrich the lives of our clients as we enable them to maintain the highest level of quality of life,” Sarosh Mistry, CEO of CK Franchising and Global Home Care, said in a statement. “This announcement is about so much more than technology; it’s about truly leading the industry with innovative and empowering solutions for seniors who want to age in place while staying connected and active in the lives of their families and friends.”

By integrating the grandPad into its core services, Comfort Keepers will also be able to more easily keep a client’s entire family informed on the condition, recovery and needs of their loved one. With more than 30,000 clients and more than 700 franchised offices globally operating under the Comfort Keepers and Amelis brands, this partnership allows Comfort Keepers to continue to transform the way in-home senior care is approached.
